When should i fit my Winter Tyres

Snow and winter tyres are not just for SUV vehicles?

In my opinion snow, tyres and winter tyres are the same thing. In the past we always associated snow tyres as being heavy tread tyres, looking more like today's 4x4 tyres used for mud and slush on farms and fields.

The new breed of winter tyres are far from this and have to combine good grip in bad weather along with the ability to drive down motorways. In fact, I believe that these tyres were first developed in Germany for the drivers who could speed down the motorway‘s and then have to climb mountains to get to the ski resorts in ice and snow, usually in their BMW or Mercedes.

The old fashioned snow tyre would be too noisy for this, because of the thick, heavy tread pattern. The car would also have been difficult to control with these heavy tyres fitted. Anybody with an old fashioned 4x4 vehicle. That is fitted out with heavy duty M&S tyres. Thus, will tell you how bad their car is to handle.As a result, the noise that these type of tyres make. Certainly no good for the modern car. Therefore,  needs to be driven at speed. Still, retaining the safety aspects that a current winter tyre will give them.

The ideal time to fit your car with winter tyres is from October to Easter time, although the year before last gave us an exceptionally cold spell with heavy snow falls at the end of March. In general, though, this is the best period to fit your winter tyres. When the temperature, begins to drop below  7 degrees.
